MacKayla Lane lies naked on the cold stone floor of a church, at the mercy of the erotic Fae master she once swore to kill. Far from home, unable to control her sexual hungers, MacKayla is now fully under the Lord Master’s spell.…In New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s stunning new novel, the walls between human and Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin’s battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest—and most erotically charged—adventure of her life.

He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister’s murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac’s every thought—and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.

As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V’lane vie for her body and soul, as cryptic entries from her sister’s diary mysteriously appear and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac’s greatest enemy delivers a final challenge.…

It’s an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth—about herself and her sister, about Jericho Barrons…and about the world she thought she knew.



My thoughts…

Book number four is chock full of fighting. Even though the beginning of the book isn’t the hand to hand combat fighting one would think. Mac is fighting for her life and Barrons is doing the only thing he can think of to help turn her back into the Mac she was. Let’s just say that this installment turns Mac into a whole new person.

I don’t want to give anything away but a lot does take place in this story. Between Mac fighting for her life, Barron’s showing how much he truly cares for Mac, the Lord Master showing big interest in Mac, and realizing that all their efforts on Halloween resulted in failure, there wasn’t a moment in this book where I was bored.

Now I will say that there is a lot of Dani time in this book and that sort of made me lose interest a bit. I don’t know why but her character really grates on my nerves. The majority of the book is Mac going out and trying to take back Dublin. She and some of the other Sidhe-seers are teaming up to fight the fae that are terrorizing the streets. There is an extremely close call between Mac and THE book that had me on the edge of my seat. However, it was the incredible whiplash of a cliffhanger at the end of the book that left my mouth gaping wide open. Apparently Moning was going for the cliffhanger of the year award and by George I think she got it!



Favorite part…

He touches my face,
There is something different in his touch. It feels like he’s saying good-bye, and I know a moment of panic. But my dream sky darkens and sleep’s moon fills the horizon.
“Don’t leave me.” I thrash in the sheets.
“I’m not Mac.”
I know I am dreaming then, because dreams are home to the absurd and what he says next is beyond absurd.
“You’re leaving me, Rainbow Girl.”

  2. I hate cliffhangers. I’ve stopped reading authors because of cliffhangers.
